My Female Patients Ask — Is it safe for me to get a COVID-19 vaccine if I would like to get pregnant?

Yes. People who want to get pregnant in the future may receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Based on current knowledge, experts believe that COVID-19 vaccines are unlikely to pose a risk to a person trying to become pregnant in the short or long term.

Currently, no evidence indicates that antibodies formed from the COVID-19 vaccination cause any problems with pregnancy, including the development of the placenta.

In addition, no evidence suggests that fertility problems are a side effect of ANY vaccine.

People who are trying to become pregnant now or who plan to try in the future may receive the COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available to them.
